follow the leader

A pair of tropical swamp turtles in a typical pose
- though I haven't yet discovered why they extend their necks like this. Anyone know?

Stunning shot, love the sunlight on them. No idea why they look up.

A real 3D effect here, the turtles look so alive, almost jumping through my monitor! Nice textures and colours. Why do they extend their necks? Listening to beautiful distant music?! V!

Thats a beauty. If I lived under a shell I'd want to stick my neck out occassionally :o)
Beautiful catch.

Maybe it's the turtly equivalent of meerkat behaviour, :-)
A lovely golden/green image.

=) i have no idea, but i love the image.. pervaded by such warm light!
maybe that is the reason,anyway.. they are saying mmm sunny!

I think they like the sun ..... the water is probably still quite cool. They get it and out during the day to regulate their temperature. I don't know where this was taken, but in Brisbane, the sun is getting pretty hot now. Well done. the detail is excellent.

I think they're debating about whether or not it's going to rain. They sure look like a couple old guys talking about the weather to me. LOL Beautiful shot! \/
